My father in-law once played this prank on his unsuspecting friend. The friend purchased a brand new pair of shoes - unbeknownst to him, my FIL bought two more pairs of shoes, each in consecutively smaller sizes. Every couple of days, he'd switch out the guy's shoes ... so he was perplexed as to why the shoes that once fit perfectly got smaller and smaller.

It was an expensive joke to play on someone though.
